Tasty Tuesday - Puppy Chow

WARNING: This is not actually dog food.

I realize that most of you already know that the recipe for puppy chow is on the back of the Crispix box.


My husband and I tend to improvise on recipes. So if you're a peanut butter lover, here is OUR recipe:

Puppy Chow

7 cups Crispix (NOT Chex)
1 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter
powdered sugar

Put peanut butter and chocolate chips in a bowl and place in the microwave. Check often and stir until melted together.

Pour melted mixture over large bowl of Crispix and gently stir. Refrigerate 20 minutes.

Pour 1/4 cup powdered sugar into a large clean bag. (We use a 13-gallon garbage bag and then save it for the next time we need a new garbage bag). Shake bag to coat with sugar.

Add refrigerated coated cereal and shake. Add more sugar if desired.

Why can't you use chex?

Well, you CAN use Chex, but it's totally not as good. Crispix is rice on one side and corn on the other and it's THE BEST! :) Like I said, this is our improved recipe.
